Soap Opera Has Its First Same-Sex Wedding
A fan-favorite couple on “The Young and the Restless” is finally tying the knot. Mariah Copeland and Tessa Porter, whose ship name is Teriah, are about the be the first-ever same-sex wedding to take place on the show.
They were introduced as a couple in 2017 and proposed earlier this year. Camryn Grimes, who is bisexual, is proud to be able to portray the LGBT storyline.
“Our relationship has been incredibly supported by the fans so far, and that’s what makes this such a joy,” she told People.
Cait Fairbanks echoed her co-star.
“I feel honored to be a part of this moment because I understand the importance of it. It’s like the best coffee you could ever have going into a scene because you know that this isn’t just a couple talking, it’s also representing on screen so many people who haven’t really had that opportunity to be themselves, and every time I come to work I am reminded of that.”
The episode premieres May 16 on CBS.

Demi Lovato has been teasing their eighth studio album throughout the year and has now given fans more detail. In an interview with Inked magazine, Lovato revealed that some of the lyrical themes will be centered around people’s reactions to their gender identity.
Lovato emphasized that their gender identity has nothing to do with their music or the direction it takes but said they’re “proud to be nonbinary” and will talk a little about acceptance from others in the lyrics of their new songs.
Lovato came out as pansexual and nonbinary in 2021 and changed their pronouns to “they/them/she/her” via social media last month.
They also revealed that the album will not be R&B or soul but is more so on the Rock end of the spectrum.
The album is set to release sometime this year.

“13 Reasons Why” star Tommy Dorfman made her Met Gala debut this year. She wore a Christopher Kane gown and shoulder-length black gloves, drawing inspiration from “The Matrix.” Dorfman also added a bag that said “Protect Trans Kids” in gold.
“I’m deeply obsessed with the Gilded Age, so for this to be my first Met feels like a beautiful alignment. I love anything cinched, corseted, and to the floor,” she said.
She also teased her look, saying that it was from a designer she loved.
Dorfman came out publicly last summer after years of privately identifying and living as a woman.
“I view today as a reintroduction to me as a woman, having made a transition medically,” she said. “Coming out is always viewed as this grand reveal, but I was never not out. Today is about clarity: I am a trans woman. My pronouns are she/her. My name is Tommy."
While this marks the star’s first Met Gala, she said there are many more on the way.
